According to WCVB, Celtics assistant coach Walter McCarty was arraigned in Framingham District Court on Thursday morning on a charge of larceny. The station said that the charge stemmed from accusations of repeatedly bouncing checks to a contractor who installed approximately $39,000 worth of cabinets in McCarty’s home.

“This matter stems from ordering some kitchen cabinets for a home that my family and I are building,” McCarty said in a team-issued press release. “We hope to resolve the matter soon, but I simply cannot comment further while the case is pending.”

McCarty pleaded not guilty and was released without bail, with a hearing date of Dec. 11. According to WCVB, a court document said that McCarty’s identity was stolen, playing a role in the bouncing of checks. McCarty spent 10 seasons in the NBA (eight with the Celtics). He’s in his second season as an assistant coach with the Celtics.

In a press release, the Celtics announced that point guard Rajon Rondo required surgery this morning after breaking his left hand in a fall at his house on Thursday night. Rondo is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks, according to the team, which would mean that he’d miss approximately eight to 14 games depending if he returns between mid-November and the beginning of December.

Here is the press release from the team:

“The Boston Celtics announced today that guard Rajon Rondo underwent successful surgical fixation of a left metacarpal fracture this morning at New England Baptist Hospital. The injury was a result of a fall at his home last night. The surgery was performed by Dr. Hervey Kimball and Celtics Team Physician Dr. Brian McKeon. Estimated timetable for return is six to eight weeks.

“Rondo, a 6’€™1’€ guard, appeared in 30 contests (all starts) for the Celtics last season and averaged 11.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 9.8 assists and 1.33 steals in 33.3 minutes per game. He recorded a season-high 22 points against Atlanta on February 26, a season-high 11 rebounds against Philadelphia on April 4. On March 9 against Detroit, Rondo recorded 18 assists and zero turnovers, passing Bill Russell for fifth highest assist total in Celtic franchise history.”

With training camp a month away, here comes more Rajon Rondo rumors.

In a recent appearance on ESPN’€™s “Around the Horn,” ESPNBoston.com’s Jackie MacMullan — during a behind-the-scenes clip from the episode — was firm in her take that Rondo is hoping to get out of Boston.

“€œIt will happen because he’€™s told them, he wants out,”€ MacMullan said. “No one believes me, but that’€™s the truth. And I don’t see how you get 80 cents on the dollar for him. Tell me where.”

MacMullan went on to say that Rondo has told the Celtics he will “€œflat-out” not re-sign with Celtics.

The subject of Rondo possibly reuniting with former coach Doc Rivers in Los Angeles also came up, with MacMullan responding, “€œ[Rivers is] done with Rondo. I mean, they went a good long way together, but that guy Rondo drives him nuts.”

The Celtics are finalizing a deal for free agent Evan Turner, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

Turner, the second overall pick in 2010, averaged a career high 14.0 points per game last season, but he averaged just 7.1 after getting traded from the 76ers to the Pacers in February.

Turner made headlines in late April when he and Lance Stephenson reportedly got into a fist fight in practice during the Pacers’ first-round series against the Hawks. Turner wound up playing just 12 minutes per game in the playoffs, as he floated in and out of the Pacers rotation.

Turner is a 6-foot-7 swingman and former Ohio State star.
